Up to now modernization has always been conceived of in contrast to the worlds of tradition and religion as a liberation from the constraints of nature. What happens however if industrial society becomes a ′tradition′ to itself? What if its own necessities functional principles and fundamental concepts are undermined broken up and demystified with the same ruthlessness as were the supposedly eternal truths of earlier epochs? These questions are the focus of Ulrich Beck′s Democracy without Enemies. The conflict of the future he argues will no longer be between East and West between communism and capitalism but between the countries regions and groups involved in primary modernization and those that are attempting to relativize and reform the project of modernity self-critically based on their experience of it. The conflict of the future will be between the two modernities which will battle over the compatibility of survival and human rights for all citizens of the earth.
